On arriving in Kyparissia follow the narrow streets to the Uper Town. Admire the distinguished mansions and shops built on the hillside crowned by the castle. The position affords fantastic views to the Gulf of Kyparissia and the olive groves. The castle is mentioned in a French medieval chronicle as ‘’De L’ ovre des Jaians’’, meaning ‘’The work of Giants’’, revealing the admiration its sturdy structure caused. Elaborate springs , such as Pazarovrysi and Stavropazaro area, the point where two parallele roads meat with cobbled paths, once filled with small shops, heavy traffic and countless merchandise, and of course the characteristic plateau before the castle’s entrance with the plane trees and the two ornate springs dated back in the times of the Turkish domination.
